Moment of Zen

April 8, 2011

I write this at the risk of sounding… dreamy. But sometimes, at the end of a long day, I find I can’t process one more word, even one more letter. After countless amounts of books and articles and sorting and searching and call numbers and URLs, I turn to my photo blog feed for relief. No words, no numbers–just colors and lines.

In the photos I find pieces of myself and, eventually, reflect on my library and what I want my library to be. On bookshelves I find beauty in colors and whimsy, organization and disorganizationsymmetrycommentary, practicality, and fun. Others images help me dream far away places, remind me to find pleasure in the simple things in life, and help me think the world is okay. Yet another inspires me to neatly organize my desk.

It’s my still and quiet version of the peaceful and relaxing Sunday Morning moment of nature and the timely and thought-provoking Daily Show moment of zen.

So, how do you get the words out of your head?
